The pandemic will not be overcome anywhere until it is overcome everywhere. Vaccine nationalism, however, has overwhelmed COVID-19 inoculation programs. As a result, vaccine programs are amplifying global inequalities in access to healthcare. How can we move from vaccine apartheid to programs based on human rights and global justice? Two global experts will discuss urgent solutions to this challenge, from applying the lessons of the successful global effort against HIV/AIDS to the calls from Global South countries to remove intellectual property barriers to more widespread access to COVID-19 vaccines.
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the National Foundation for India.
